Windows 7: Win 7 & GeForce Go 6200

04 Jun 2010   #31


Fabe, first time poster and it looks like you're the man in terms of the help you've offered. There have been no active posts here since March, and I believe I've tried everythng you have suggested and still cannot seem to get the 195.81 driver to update on my Vaio. I downloaded the Modder, rebooted in Safe mode, modded the driver, moved it to my desktop, went to the device Mgr then the card, tried updating the driver and got the same message everyone else got. So I'm doing something wrong. The thing is, I don't know what a Modder is, and frankly I'm not sure which icon I'm supposed to move to the desktop (I moved the setup one, FYI). Any suggestions for a neophyte?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, SP1

Hello, I'm also struggling with this issue.
I have tried all of the above suggestions for my friend's Sony Vaio VGN-FS195VP, and a few more tricks besides (clean boot, writing a different inf file, etc.) and still to no avail.

The laptop ran fine with Windows XP Professional SP3 and 512mb of RAM.
I've since upgraded his RAM to 1GB (as the Vaio really can't support much more), and installed Windows 7 Ultimate x86 SP1.
Since installing Win7x64, it has constantly displayed a BSoD after around 5 minutes of running any application that uses the graphics (World of Warcraft, Minecraft, and an NDS emulator).
Though, the laptop can run fine if no games are played.

Perhaps someone else can shed some light on this, as I'm going stir-crazy!

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, SP1

I have found no fix, and have reverted that laptop back to Windows XP SP3 (x86). It appears to have no issues whatsoever with WinXP

Win 8 prof 32 bit


this is, how I solve it for Windows 8 32Bit:

Laptop: Sony Vaio VGN-FS195VP
Graphic: NVidia GeForce Go 6200 TurboCache
Hardware-ID: PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0167&SUBSYS_81C2104D&REV_A1

  1. Download Driver 196.21 and unzip to local directoy
  2. open NV_DISP.INF with notepad an add 2 Lines: (see bold lines)

    %NVIDIA_DEV.0165.01% = Section002, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0165
    %NVIDIA_DEV.0167.01% = Section001, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0167
    %NVIDIA_DEV.0169.01% = Section001, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0169

    NVIDIA_DEV.0161.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6200 TurboCache(TM)"
    NVIDIA_DEV.0162.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6200SE TurboCache(TM)"
    NVIDIA_DEV.0163.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6200 LE"
    NVIDIA_DEV.0165.01 = "NVIDIA Quadro NVS 285"
    NVIDIA_DEV.0167.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6200 TurboCache(TM) Sony"
    NVIDIA_DEV.0169.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6250"
  3. set kompatibility mode of setup.exe to "Windows 7" and start it for installation
It works for me!
